Google Chrome celebrates ten years with Easter Egg edition of Dino game

Google Chrome is one of the most widely used browsers in the world. In 2008, the online browser was revealed with the help of a comic book which detailed about the new open source browser. Now that Google Chrome is celebrating its tenth anniversary in September 2018, the search engine has updated and also themed the Offline Dino game.

The mini-game An Easter Egg appears when there is no internet connection and is trying to visit the page. Initially, Chrome displays a standard No Internet page which suggested the users to try checking the network cables, router or modem or asks to Reconnect to Wi-Fi. When the users press the space bar, it begins an 8 bit side scroller with a tyrannosaurus at the upper left corner. A dinosaur starts running at a dessert landscape and the space bar helps hi9m to jump off the obstacles like the cactus and flying birds.

The scrore of the game is displayed at the upper right side of the corner and the browser remembers the high scores for that session. The new birthday edition allows the dino to collect a birthday cake and wears a party cap while the background features balloons. The Easter Egg will be featured for the entire month of September, 2018.

The limited edition of the game will be available on desktop as well as mobile platforms and features retro game sounds as the dinosaur jumps from the hurdles. Being offline on a desktop is always a boring experience but the Android app has featured the offline page downloads since 2017. Taking about the anniversary celebrations, this is just the beginning and Google is already noting that the Material Design refresh is soon going to be introduced in September, 2018. It will be available across all the operating systems with Chrome 69. The browser was first released on September 2, 2018 for Microsoft Windows.

2019 BMW i8 Review

The 2019 BMW i8 is a head-turner for its looks, which hides its plug-in powertrain. That’s good or bad, depending on your priorities.Even among six-figure cars with two doors, the 2019 BMW i8 steals stares. That could be because of the dramatic wing doors and futuristic shape, its laser headlights at night, or the 2019 i8’s silent propulsion for up to 18 miles.
Or it may steal attention because, even after more than four years on sale, it’s a very rare sight.

Alongside the Galaxy S7, the LG G5 is one of the biggest phones (not literally) to launch in 2016 – and we're not just talking in the Android world. It's one of the heavyweights and LG will be looking to set the market alight with the G5's alternative and innovative modular design.

Apple iPhone XR Review

If you aren't sure you are ready to leave the Home button behind and embrace Face ID, think again. We'll tell you why the iPhone XR is worth the sacrifice - especially because it's just as good (if not better than) the iPhone XS. Find out more in out full review.
Should I Buy The Apple iPhone XR?
The iPhone XR brings Face ID to the masses. We’re sure people will continue to rebel against the lack of Home button, but eventually we expect them to come round and embrace the larger screen, Portrait mode (front and back), animoji and memoji.We have no doubt that this will be a popular iPhone and it deserves to be. The only question is why would anyone buy an iPhone XS when the iPhone XR is just as powerful and has a bigger screen.

BlackBerry KEYone Review

BlackBerry soliders on with a curious Android device that gets nearly everything right. It’s not for everyone though, in fact, it’s not really for anyone. But if you want a physical keyboard you will absolutely love it.
Should I Buy The BlackBerry KEYone?
But then, the KEYone is the best BlackBerry phone for years. It has (finally) successfully melded classic BlackBerry design with the necessary mix of Android and nostalgia. Importantly, the latter is only faint this time – this is a device for 2017, not 2007.If you love your iPhone or Samsung, you’ll hate the KEYone and won’t even consider buying it. But if you’ve made it to the end of this review, chances are you’re weighing up a buy. If you think you’ll love the BlackBerry KEYone, then I’m pretty certain you won’t be disappointed. You’re part of a minority, but finally BlackBerry has a phone for you that doesn’t force you to compromise.
